    Yeah, I do OK, though it's not really my focus, I just find info-type Adsense sites easier than product-based sites. But there is a bit of a negative vibe around EPN that dates back to when they introduced the new PPC-style program (they got ripped off really badly when they were in CJ, by cookie-stuffers and stuff, so they are really strict about that now). But actually, it's a pretty good program if you know how to promote it right. I create little "mini-authority" sites around products that sell really well on eBay (you HAVE to research how well they sell on eBay, or it won't translate into sales and good EPC - makes sense really). I use Wordbay to insert live auction listings into my posts and pages, but I really keep those low-key. Google DOESN'T like thin affiliate sites - remember what happened to BANS sites..? I just put two to four live listings in there, you don't really need any more.

    The trick is really to then create a lot of long-tail type content around "sub-keywords". You want to end up with a lot of long-tail traffic and a lot of clicks, and if it's a good niche, you can get, say $0.30 EPC (though that's not all that easy to get for newbies), and then tons of clicks translate into good money. And CTR is not an issue like with Adsense :).

    So yeah, I am surprised more people don't get back into EPN because it's another good revenue stream - 7-day cookie, money straight into Paypal about 3 weeks after month's end, and a lot of niches you can tap into that you just won't be able to monetise with Adsense ("vintage cassette players", that kind of thing!)

    On their most recent conf call they said top affiliate for 2011 was 1.2 mil so you might want to check math.

    Hmm, yeah, I would doubt you can make 10 grand a day! You would need tens of thousands of visitors and have a very good EPC (which depends on a whole bunch of factors, junk traffic won't do it). Cookie-stuffers might manage it, but they don't last long in EPN these days.

    Yeah, they got ripped off for millions and don't take kindly to cookie-stuffers these days - you can't refer traffic from a site you have not verified, so cookie-stuffers get caught pretty quickly. I know people who even got banned because someone mistakenly "stuffed" their cookie by copying pictures off their site which were actually live linked from eBay.

    Yeah, abbreviations are where the big money is - you get on the latest abbreviation before too many people know about it and you can be laughing all the way to the bank :D

    I make about $150-$200 from one niche EPN site with no work. I've had the site for the past 3-5 years.

    Hey, may be anyone have the EPN account approved?
    I have a lot of eBay traffic but no account. If you need the traffic then PM me, we can monetize together.

    I created a program that assist power buyers on eBay and has been approved by eBay dev team. Actually it's geared for power buyers to be able to buy more BUY IT NOW items. Have just a handful of users first few months where total sales from just a few people are 1.5-2Million a month using Buy It Now items only.

    Would EPN work for this type of "traffic" driver. ...where it's repeat buyers but most of the items they wouldn't have otherwise purchased where our tool helps them to see if faster and streamline the decision making and checkout process?

    Any guestimate (if this type of model works for EPN) that if we drove 5 buyer ID's on eBay to purchase 1 million/month in electronic items on eBay, what that would equate to? (a rough guesstimate does the trick for now ;)

    Thanks so much in advance! I've got a great tool ...not just trying to figure out how to monetize on it !
